It doesn’t take much to realize the change in relationships and dating since the internet has arrived. A large amount of the population now use online dating sites to find their partners.
“Online Dating Magazine estimates that more than 20 million people visit at least one online dating service a month.” (Online Dating Magazine – 2007)
Long time ago dating had a completely different conduct from ads in magazines to creating a profile online!
Does that mean the etiquette and the dating procedures change? Of course! So for those considering online dating, here are some tips, advice and etiquette!
I am using:
One main thing to remember when deciding to date online is: ‘This is not a game. You will be dealing with real people with real feelings’!It is a different way to date and people may be mistaken and take for granted that some individuals really are seeking for a loving relationship.
Be honest in your profile from the start to the end” This is a big one! Its very important you say the truth and do not lie!
“Post recent photos” Again this is to prevent people from being surprised when they really do see you! It’s essential you take recent photo’s where you look good preferably! Take them from different angles, side view, full face from the front etc.
Now when you get a response from people who have reviewed your profile this is the best way to reply!
“try no more than once more” looking or seeming desperate is frightening!
“be sure that you match the required criteria before you respond “ Making sure you are their type!
“Always reply to genuinely decent responses, even if the answer is ‘No’” and “Always be polite and kind, especially if the answer is ‘No’ it is nice to be nice so why not encourage it by setting an example!
“Reply as soon as possible. Make it a priority” Simply because you would want the same in return!
